Celebration’s Dissertation

Do you like this story?

This week I celebrated my wife’s birthday along with other members of our family.

It was fun. It was crazy. It was loud and it was joyous. There was plenty of good food, good gifts, good company, and good conversation had by all. It was a day that we could take just a moment to celebrate and honour a magnificent life, to take out time to pause and say ‘thank you’, to say ‘I love you’, and to affirm how much we all appreciated her contribution to our lives for yet another year. Her life has made a significant difference to each of us, and for that we are truly thankful.

The dissertation was represented in words, phone calls, in text messages, in postings on the Internet, in cards, in emails, and in the many hugs and kisses that flowed. This celebration moved to a higher level as a direct result of these words that were expressed.

But let’s not stop at just one day each year to celebrate. With the birth of each new day we need to learn the art of celebration by using words that frame our day in a celebratory manner.

And just as I wake each morning to the sound of parrots, lorikeets, kookaburras, magpies amidst a myriad of birdsong – so too should we wake to join in with their chorus. This should be a regular part of our daily celebration. Why? Because we have been given yet another day of opportunity to live life to the very fullest.

Live life. Live long. Long live life.
